Donate in memory
We recognise the special significance of making a donation in memory of a loved one. There are lots of different ways you can support the hospice in celebration and remembrance of someone's life.
Light up a Life
Donate to our Light up a Life at Home appeal and help to support the hospice this Christmas. Each donation will be acknowledged with a personalised Light up a Life card and this year your loved one's name will appear in a special Light Up a Life edition of the Bolton News on 16th December 2020. You can leave a lasting memory you have of a loved one, share stories, photos and dedicate a light online here.
The Tree of Life
Our Tree of Life is a beautiful, handcrafted metal sculpture located in the hospice's main reception that allows personalised engraved leaves to be added to the branches to create a stunning and poignant lasting collection of memories and special messages. The tree represents the beauty of life, enduring strength and eternal peace.
If you'd like to ask friends and family for donations to Bolton Hospice in lieu of flowers at a loved one’s funeral we have specially designed in memory collection envelopes that will also enable us to claim the gift aid on these donations. If you would like a supply of these envelopes, please call the fundraising office on 01204 663 065 or email us.
We understand that the loss of somebody close is a deeply personal experience. Tribute funds are a unique way to make a lasting tribute to a loved one and for many people, supporting a cause by concentrating your time and effort into keeping a memory alive can help with loss.
You can set up a tribute fund in the name of your loved one and, as it is personal to you, you have the choice of how and when it is added to. Your gifts, and those of your family and friends who can also be invited to contribute, will help us continue to care for people with life-limiting illnesses whilst at the same time act as lasting tribute to your loved one.
